2014 Opening Dates Part 2: Europe

2014 Bike Park Opening Dates Europe

Bike Park Opening Dates PART 2: This time it's Europe.... but unfortunately it's not as clear-cut as North America. There are a lot more "TBD's" than we would like in the tables below - many bike parks are yet to identify an opening date. We thought about delaying the article until we had more information, but decided it would be good to get it out there now, as there are plenty of dates that are identified. You can then bookmark this page and come back in a few weeks by which time we should have filled in the gaps. And if you know something we don't, then send us an email and we'll add the dates so that everyone then knows!

As we said for Part 1: North American Bike Parks, we'll update the ones with TBD as soon as they become available. And remember that these dates are subject to change at many of these bike parks, as late season snow or bad weather can really mess with the trail preparation. If you're planning on heading to a bike park for opening day, it's always best check with them first!
